Seasons Greetings From Rock the Cause 

Dear Cause Rockers,

We want to thank you for helping to make 2014 one of our most successful years at Rock the Cause. 

Okay. So we are bragging a little. In 2014 Rock the Cause released on its own record label close to a dozen charitable music releases. You can see all of them in our on line music store.   

Our music releases were featured in SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard Magazine, Pitchfork, The Boston Globe, MTV, SoulPancake, Upworthy, YouTube, Huffington Post, Sirius XM, MPR, NPR and more! Helping us to raise awareness for the causes and music we love on an unprecedented level. 

Over the past two years through concert events and charitable music releases, we have given close to $300,000 in combined donations and grants to organizations like Childrens Cancer Research Fund, MusiCares, Team Kendal Kidz, Ampersand Families and more!   

We have spent hundreds of hours in classroom settings working with organizations like Upward Bound and High School for Recording Arts. All in an effort to develop a new generation community minded youth.

2015 plans to be an even bigger year with even more music releases on the way. We will launch an on-line auction site full of celebrity items, concert packages, and music memorabilia to help with our annual operating costs. 

We hope in 2015 we can continue to inspire and engage you in meaningful ways through music. We welcome your year end donations and support here.

Many Merry Wishes To You & Yours!
